ALWAYS APPRECIATE LIFE – By Awoke U. Godswill

ALWAYS APPRECIATE LIFE 

I started to love my life,

When I got a chance to visit a hospital.

Incidentally I learned, how much wealth there is,

In simply living in freedom and liberty!

For we cheaply price life’s basic things,

Since they are most often freely given.

But we tend to learn the value of simple silence,

When drowning in the nuisances of life.

Let’s work to appreciate life,

Whether in penury or in affluence!
